Titans sign Johnathan Joseph

Veteran cornerback Johnathan Joseph has found a new home and he’ll be staying in the AFC South.

Joseph told Josina Anderson of ESPN that he has agreed to a contract with the Titans. Joseph became a free agent in March after playing out his contract with the Texans.

Joseph spent the last nine seasons in Houston and was a fixture in the starting lineup for almost all of that time. He had 51 tackles and an interception during his final season with the team.

Joseph opened his career with five seasons in Cincinnati, so he brings a lot of experience with him to Tennessee. He joins a cornerback group that includes Adoree' Jackson, Malcolm Butler, Tye Smith and a pair of 2020 draft picks. The Titans picked up Kristian Fulton in the second round and Chris Jackson in the seventh round.

  1. Jonathan Joseph was built to last held down a spot on the texans for a whole decade

  2. He’s there to show the youngsters how it’s done.
    Class guy, hope he does well for himself and retires on his own terms.

  3. He can help bring along the younger guys, esp. Kristian Fulton, who needs a little polishing. Good move for Vrabel who already knows what he’s getting with Joseph.

  4. As a Texans fan they held on to him a couple years too long. He has to line up 10 yards off the line just to have a chance at keeping up with a WR. But I wish him luck. He will most likely play one year with them and then be hired at some level to coach with them.

  5. Mike Brown just let him walk out the door.. Another colossal roster Bungle. To this day they haven’t replaced him.

  6. Reminds me of the Cam Wake signing last season. JRob likes to see if he can find an old guy and turn him back into a gem. CB needs to be pretty fast on the field of play.

  7. Titans might finish 3rd in the South. One sneaky playoff run doesn’t make resigning Tannehill a smart decision.
